  1. Doubt Frances would be paired with Rosemary. Yes, Tracy does still anchor those hours with Jackie and Jim. I mentioned having two “full” anchor teams, meaning adding another male to the mix. Just seems like a lot for 3 people to handle 3.5 hours, and honestly seems like a lot to have Lucy (or Keith or Erin) stick around to anchor the 11am after the morning shift. Adding another male anchor could allow Tracy and this person to pick up the 11am and add either 4pm and 6pm, or even just the 5pm, leaving the rest for Jim and Jackie.
  2. Stephania did have a coanchor briefly, Dray Clark. They should go with the coanchors for weekend mornings, but Rosemary also needs a coanchir weekend evenings and Tracy could use a coanchor weekday evenings so that there are two full anchor teams weekday evenings.
  3. Where exactly does Shawn fit in currently? And who ended up filling Jim’s spot at 6pm?
  4. I could see Katie Couric in a Larry King type of role in the 9pm hour. I could also see Bill Weir take over the 10pm hour with a Nightline type of show. And a news wrap up show at 11pm, kind of like they had with Aaron Brown. 9pm: Katie Couric Tonight/Live 10pm: Lateline with Bill Weir 11pm: Newsnight with Aaron Brown
  5. https://www.drozshow.com The above internet address redirects to his show’s website.
  6. Sunday night had coanchors today. Nydia was in next to Walter tonight. She had subbed for him last night too. Jaclyn was in for her Sunday Morning next to Gray. I could get on board with these pairings. On a separate note, it seems that Christie Ileto is now the 4pm features anchor. She is mentioned in the close now and Alicia is not.
  7. It would make the most sense for Ben Bradley to add midday duties to his schedule.
  8. After his retirement, the obvious schedule to me is: Noon, 4pm, 6pm: Brian, Sarah, Adam, Jamie (only 4/6), Alicia (only noon/4) 5pm, 10pm, 11pm: Rick, Sharrie, Cecily, Ducis, Alicia (only 5) I imagine they will eventually decide traffic between Jessica and Matt, with one doing mornings and the other afternoon/evening.
  9. Because Scott and Jeff did so well ratingswise when they were in the chair … not gonna happen.

  11. Anybody else notice last night’s 11pm had the PHL17 bug? Also, Jaclyn Lee has co-anchored the past few Saturdays.
  12. KNTV would be wise to finally add a 4pm newscast and bring him in to split evening duties with Raj, Jessica, and Janelle.
  13. Didn’t Rob used to anchor in the mornings before anchoring the 4:30pm? I think mornings he was replaced by Stefan is what was being referenced.
  14. Which would explain why Brian was off today.
  15. The morning has an updated open that just mentions Karen, Tamela, and Matt. Traffic last week was Jessica (M, F) and Matt (Tu, W, Th) and so far has followed the same pattern this week thru Thursday morning. Also, last week noon weather was handled by Brittney (M, F), Chris (Tu), Karen (W), and Adam (Th). So far Monday thru Wednesday of this week has followed the same pattern.
  16. Also wondering who will do weather at noon. David used to do weather at noon (M-Th with Friday off) but he also would first appear on air at 4:30am (not 4am - Karen handled the weather that first half hour). So far Britney did Monday (also 4pm too) and Chris did Tuesday. Honestly think they should give Adam the noon. Have him do noon, 4pm, 6pm, and Cecily 5pm (full hour), 10pm, 11pm. Gives Adam & Cecily equal air time, let’s Adam get home at a decent time to see his kids, and alleviates Karen from working 10 hour days.
  17. I don’t believe Tony is Greek.
  18. Plenty of stations have had 4pm newscasts, gotten rid of them, and brought them back years or decades later. Not sure why you’re doubting it could happen.
  19. Wonder what the plan is after he leaves. I see a few options: 1-Karen slides over to weather with Jessica Boyington taking over traffic. 2-Karen slides over to weather with Matt Pellman taking over traffic while continuing at 4pm and 5pm. 3-Karen slides over to weather with Matt Pellman taking over traffic while Jessica Boyington takes over afternoon traffic. Also, I feel this is a good time to rearrange weekday weather duties as mornings and noon is a long time for one person. Cecily-5pm (full hour), 10pm, 11pm Adam-12noon, 4pm, 6pm Karen (or David’s replacement)-mornings
  20. I must say while he does a good job out in the field reporting, he’s not that great at the anchor desk.
  21. I assume she’ll probably be filling in for Jim at 6 & 11.
  22. Nice to see Sarah subbing for Jim Monday at 6pm. The go-to’s are usually Rick, Brian, and Sharrie.
  23. KYW does this already and indeed seems pointless to have the same anchors on that entire time. I assume it’s Judge Judy’s replacement.
  24. Jeff Glor’s stardom had already climaxed when he was given the EN. They should’ve given him the position when Katie left, and not to Scott.
